Shosuro Ikawa was a diplomat of the Scorpion Clan who was possessed by the Lying Darkness.

Sons Edit

Ikawa was a diplomat who was sent to visit and spy upon the Lion Clan. He had an affair with an Akodo woman, returning to Scorpion lands shortly after his affair was consummated. He never realized she had borne him a son. Ikawa's Scorpion and Lion sons were born on the same day, spending his childhood ignorant of the other, and each took his father's name at his gempukku. [1]

Lying Darkness Edit

Somehow Ikawa was driven mad by the Lying Darkness and murdered his former Akodo lover. The half-brothers, Shosuro Ikawa and Akodo Ikawa, joined together on a mission of justice. [1] They hunted their father down in 1119. The two men did not part on good terms. They did not know the diplomat's action had been driven by the Lying Darkness. [2]
